One day we'll sit and chat and you can tell me all about the patent and trademark process. I'm sure it's as tedious as trying to buy a suppressor!
Good work Sir,
It is a hassle and a very large investment.
First you have to assemble all of your designs and descriptions of what you have designed and It,s function with all documentation and hire a patent attorney to go through it with you, then he has to fly to DC to do a patent search to find anything that is close or similar for review. after reviewing,
anything close has to be presented for clarification of the difference between your design and theirs.
The board reviews your application and determines if you will be infringing on other patents or not.
If it is excepted you have to submit a final application with all of the other documents (To make sure you didn,t change anything from the approval process.
After it is excepted, I will learn what I have to do for the final patent.
This was the short version and the process has changed over the years In some areas.
Cost has gone up from the last patent ($16,000.00 to over $20,000.00) and so has the lawyer fees.
